Install Hypnotix – The Linux Mint IPTV client

Hello, friends. While it is true that services like Netflix or Amazon Prime are world leaders, there is another alternative like IPTV. So in this post, you will learn how to install Hypnotix which is the IPTV client that offers us Linux Mint.

Recently the Linux Mint development team informed that a new version of Hypnotix is available. This IPTV client is in a very early stage of development but it is usable from now on.

Install Hypnotix on Linux

For now, as it is a rather early stage of development, Hypnotix is only available in DEB format so it is perfectly compatible with UBuntu 20.04 onwards.

If you use this distribution or Linux Mint 20 or any derivative, just execute these commands:

wget https://github.com/linuxmint/hypnotix/releases/download/1.1/hypnotix_1.1_all.deb

And then install it with APT

sudo apt install ./hypnotix_1.1_all.deb

Remember that this installation can also be done using your system’s graphic interface.

Install Hypnotix on Linux Mint 19.3

Linux Mint 20 is a marvel but there are still users who use the reliable Linux Mint 19.3

Trying to install Hypnotix on this system will cause a dependency error. You can fix it, installing the package python3-imdbpy_6.8-2_all.deb

wget http://lug.mtu.edu/ubuntu/pool/universe/i/imdbpy/python3-imdbpy_6.8-2_all.deb

And install it:

sudo apt install ./python3-imdbpy_6.8-2_all.deb

And then, if you can download and install Hypnotix as before.

Using Hypnotix

As soon as the application is installed, we can run it from the main menu without problems.

Once you do it, you will see the following screen

1.- Hypnotix on Linux

On this main screen, you will see how the sources are classified by TV channels, Movies, and Series.

To access the Hypnotix default catalog (FreeIPTV) click on TV Channel

2.- TV Channels list

As you can see there are many. Just choose a country and then the channels will be loaded. Select one and the playback will start.

It’s really easy to use the application but it’s what Linux Mint always does to take everything to the next level of ease.

Conclusion

Linux Mint continues to offer us solutions to remain the distribution that best suits the novice. In this sense, this application is another step forward. It won’t be ready for version 20.1 but it’s moving forward and today it’s usable.

  3. Much like W’s earlier comment, I got the same thing. Mint 19.3.

  4. O Hypnotix não funciona bem no meu Computador. Demora a abrir e depois trava tudo e o computador tem que ser desligado na tomada…

  5. I had researched over a few days in trying to find urls for providers to work, I even used the terminal commands which failed, then I came across a website, which had URL and all 5 of the URLs worked for me and I have over 10,000 TV channels for Hypnotix. So here are the 5 different URLs:
    https://iptv-org.github.io/iptv/index.m3u
    https://iptv-org.github.io/iptv/index.sfw.m3u
    https://iptv-org.github.io/index.category.m3u
    https://iptv-org.github.io/iptv/index.country.m3u
    https://iptv-org.github.io/iptv/index.language.m3u
